Kristján's chalet is everything you need for your stay in Iceland as a solo traveler, a couple, or even with a child. It is quant and clean. The shower is a good size and the kitchen had everything we needed to do some cooking. There are supermarkets nearby, the Oddsson hostel nearby is a good pickup spot for tours, and all the major downtown areas are within walking distance. This is a great place to stay!

We had a good stay, as mentioned the bed was comfortable and it was a decent space for 2 people. Parking was on the street and depending when you get back it you would find a spot at least within a block or 2 max. We cooked our meals in the airbnb and it had the things we required to do so. It saved on going out for meals. It would be great if there were darker blinds or curtains for the windows, as the sun set very late, it was still bright in the chalet. I know it is not necessary but a TV would also be nice to watch Netflix at night time before bed.

Close to the centre of town and a 40 minute walk from black sand beaches and the cup stone where you can have a hot soak as you look out over the ocean.

We had a wonderful stay in this chalet. The location was fantastic, we were able to easily walk to everything we wanted to do in Reykjavik. Super close to the harbor. Equipped with everything we needed. If travelling in summer would recommended bringing eyes shades for sleeping. Would recommend this place to anyone.

10 Holtsgata was a GREAT location to downtown! Just a five minute walk to the town square and a short walk from there we were able to go to Harpa, the flea market and many restaurants. The cabin was a perfect size for two people and laundry machines and garbage bins were very accessible right out the door. It was clean, cozy and bright with many windows for fresh air. Overall, it was a great place to stay! Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends!
